Not the Same

I was a real fan of Elephant Bar for several years, but seems it went downhill in the past 2 years. Service iffy at best, just seems there was a general lack of caring in service and sometimes the food. New owners have changed menu but prices went up and service still iffy. I only go there in a... read more

Got a drink ASAP, that was nice. However, over 45 minutes later still waiting to be acknowledged by bartender so I can order some food. I'm running out of fingernails. Pretty sure if I got up and left w/o paying they wouldn't notice until closing time. Better service at a Carl's, Jr. !

very good food and ambience. Always clean and inviting. I like the new menu which is much more compact than the previous "book" menu. Service is iffy. Sometimes I get great service, sometimes its like hailing a cab. Especially like the tomato basil soup and creme brulee. Havent' had anything bad yet. The jambalaya can go from mild to very... More

We use to love going to the Elphant Bar for dinner a few times a month, now mabe once every two or three months. Their menu has shrunk way down eliminating most of the dishes we like. Most of the time the food is good, however sometimes it doesn't meet the mark. Service is fine and prices are ok. They... More

An excellent place to eat - but the service is "tired", The Elephant Bar was the place on my trip that had the most disinterested staff. But you just have something to eat then this is an OK place.

This place is pretty awesome. Good service and attention to the customer. I went here twice, once I ordered a wedge salad and it was great. The next time I ordered a steak and it was cooked perfectly, service was still good, not great but good this time. I would recommend this place, Great food good service.

A little slow to be seated without much communication from the hostess. Turns out they were arranging three tables but even that shouldn't have taken that long. Just a bit more information about why we were waiting would have been nice. A nice selection of Asian and American food - for example, several stir fry type of dishes, a variety... More
